Derby, a dry chypre with leather
Sous Le Vent,a green classic made in the 1930s for women
I love them both and can't decide
Just asking which some prefer over the other.
Also an option if you can't make up your mind.
"...her fragrance all in my keeping; softly she comes in the night." Lyrics, Gordon Lightfoot, "Softly."
I've only tried Sous le Vent once while I was also testing Vol de Nuit parfum. For me, Vol de Nuit parfum overshadowed Sous le Vent (much preferred VdN's drydown compared to SLV's drydown), but I'm sure more extensive testing is in order.
For now, my vote is for Derby.
Love both but prefer Sous Le Vent

Derby for me.
Love to smell Sous le Vent on others. Like to wear vintage Derby.
I love everything about Derby.
Sous le Vent smells great, but is too fleeting IMO.

Sous le Vent by far. I don't like Derby for myself.

Derby by Guerlain
I just slightly prefer Sous le Vent. Derby is wonderful, but its drydown isn't as inspiring as Sous le Vent to me.
Derby is wonderful, though.
